A recent story out of Logan, Utah got me thinking about how those who are wrongly accused, whether a registrant or not a registrant, are treated so vastly different in the eyes of the world.
On April 23, 62 yr. old Michael Fife (not a registrant) was killed after being accused of a sexual assault aboard a Cache Valley Transit District bus. A 16 yr. old female called her 17 yr. old brother and told him that she had been sexually assault by Fife. A few minutes later, the brother met Fife’s bus as Fife exited at his bus stop. Fife exited the bus and was “linebacker-charged” by the 17 yr. old, knocked to the ground, hitting his head on the sidewalk and sustaining what would turn out to be fatal injuries. Michael Fife died at the hospital on April 27 from his injuries. A GoFundMe page was set up to help cover expenses.
